*Blood tests – routine blood tests postponed
A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.
Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems, will still get one but where your clinician feels that it is appropriate to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled.
Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.
If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.*
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic we are unable to offer a walk-in blood clinic, and bookings are by appointment only. Please do not attend the blood clinic without an appointment, as you will not be seen.
Please contact the reception team between 8:00am and 6:30pm on 020 8997 4661 , who will support you to book an appointment.
We thank you in advance for your co-operation.
